Hayley Mariah Worden, 15, of Covington, Ohio, passed away on Tuesday, January 5, 2021.
She was born on January 25, 2005, in Dayton, Ohio, to Bryan Worden and Angela (Martin) Foster.
She was preceded in death by her grandfather, Bill Worden, and her uncle, Mike Jones.
Hayley was full of life and brimming with promise. At only 15 years of age, she had already determined what she was going to devote her life to. Her love of children and desire to help others had driven her to choose a career in nursing, specifically, pediatric nursing. Hayley was a sophomore at Hardin-Houston High School, where she played basketball, softball and most recently ran track. She was a member of FFA and loved caring for all her animals. She had chickens, ducks, cats, dogs, a ferret, a rabbit, and countless other furry friends over the years. She had looked forward to having her own little farm where she could finally get a horse. Hayley was rambunctious, giggly, caring, and compassionate. She was stunningly beautiful but loved four-wheeling and getting muddy. She has touched the heart and souls of all who knew her. She is loved and missed dearly.
Hayley is survived by her parents, Bryan (Christina) Worden of Palm Coast, Florida, and Angela (Chris) Foster of Covington; her brothers and sisters, Caiden Jones, Brooklynn Worden, Michael Foster, and Alexandria Foster; her grandparents, Jami Worden of Greenville, Ohio, Pam Vallandingham of Cocoa Beach, Florida, Debbie Cissner of Piqua, Ohio, Blaine and Debbie Jones of Greenville, and Steve and Jenny Foster of Piqua. She is also survived by her aunts and uncles, Shanna (Mark) Totton of Troy, Ohio, Jessi Worden of Arcanum, Adena Fussnecker of Keene, North Dakota, Chris (Lindsey) Jones of Seymour, Indiana, Daniel Carle of Palatka, Florida, and Donnie Martin; her great-aunts and uncles, Cyndi (Gerald) Hartman of Arcanum, Dave Worden of Stelvideo, Ohio, and many other greats who are not named; her cousins, Bria, Kaylee, and Aiden Elliott, Devin Beisner, Trinity Schweitzer, and countless other cousins, family members and friends.
